About the Movie
Khatchig's on a quest to find the fundamental nature of reality but he'll have to overcome a system that has snubbed him, hostile hostel residents, and some really strong mushrooms. Will Khatchig uncover the secrets of our universe before he loses his home, his friends, and his sanity? Will anybody care?? Journey back to the 80's with "Digital Physics" and you may just take a peek into the future. Music by Manuel Göttsching.
Haig is a great friend, and a great actor. Congrats to the cast and crew on this film!

Does the square root of 2 exist in the 'real world' or is it just a mathematical construct? If it doesn't exist in the 'real world', what are the implications? If those questions make sense to you, then watch Digital Physics! If not, DP is still enjoyable as a character study as you watch the main character struggle for validation.
An interesting blend of science and drama (but I wouldn't call it sci-fi) with good visuals, especially for an indie film; and a fitting soundtrack featuring Manuel Gottsching.
Oh, and I even signed up for a FREE pack of trading cards (visit the film's website). Pretty fun (especially if the cards actually arrive)!
TL;DR check it out!

An enjoyable, interesting, totally different film...and very thought-provoking. The protagonist (named Kachig?) is a rather funny, nerdy guy who is totally consumed with his belief that the world (universe?) is being controlled by some grand intelligent computer program. The precise setting is not clear, but most of the action revolves around a youth hostel populated by an oddball collection of characters from different countries who either are amused, charmed, puzzled, or completely annoyed by him and his obsessive thoughts and behavior. (It’s not clear whether Kachig’s unconventional ideas are being reinforced and psychedelically encouraged by his experimental use of cannabis.) The film has an almost mesmerizing quality to it, partially due to its hypnotic musical soundtrack and visual patterns being generated on a computer screen. The primitive computer at the hostel looks like maybe it’s an old Comodore or one of the original Macs from the early 1980s, helping to give the movie a real retro flavor. There are some welcome interludes of comic relief in the film (including a madcap chase scene over stolen hotdogs!) that break up the heavy focus on the plot’s primary theme. I don’t pretend to be familiar with the math/physics theories Kachig talks about in trying to explain the patterns he’s discovering, and I tend to be pretty skeptical of most “sci fi” ideas, but this film leaves you wondering “What if…?” and definitely provides lots of food for thought!
